Deceived

An original poem

 

They smile at you with open arms

They wave at you with appealing charm

They glare at you with piercing eyes

They break you down until you die

 

Eyes a bright yellow and sharp like knives

A cat with more than nine lives

Trust them at first; think they’re your friend

However, it’s only a deceived pretend

 

Find them down the river

East of the castle to the King

Travellers down that road quiver

Awaiting their fiery wings

 

 

Hidden in a cave, tucked away from the world

The halls painted, red, glaring at you plain

Their bed is a pathetic copy of the underworld

It slowly drives you insane

 

Don’t trust who they are

They’ll tell you to listen

However, their compassion for you is far

Their friendship, a fake fiction

 

Because…

 

They smile at you with open arms

They wave at you with appealing charm

They glare at you with piercing eyes

They break you down until you die
